Using your completed Self-Concept Inventory, you will write a two-three page essay typed, double spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font, about how two or more of the aspects of your self-concept developed. This is an essay, so do not simply answer the guiding questions below in a bullet format. In this essay, you are analyzing your self concept based on the data you gathered in Part I. This must look like and read like an essay. You should include the following information:
? Were you surprised by any of the information that you discovered from your rankings? From the rankings of the others? Why or why not?
? Select on item from your list that you believe developed because of reflected appraisal. Explain how that item developed (e.g., who did the reflected appraisal come from? One person? Several people? What was that person a significant other?), giving specific examples.
? Select one item from your list that you believe developed because of social comparison. Social comparison happens when you select a reference group (e.g., your first grade classmates) and compare yourself to them. Explain how the item you selected developed through social comparisons, giving specific examples.
? What insight to yourself did you gain through this assignment?
This reaction essay must be a minimum of two full pages. ?You should include more detail than just answering the questions above (e.g., No, I wasn’t surprised will not suffice as an answer to the first item.) ?This essay should follow the standard mechanics of a college essay.
This organizational structure should help you get started on this essay.
